Here are the steps of my DIY Tutorial:

  1. Cut exactly at the seam line the sleeves from the shirt.

  1. Once the sleeves are separated from the shirt straighten the sleeve line at the sleeve cap. Take a ruler and mark a straight line with the tailor’s chalk and cut at the chalk line the curvy part, that you have a straight edge.

  1. Cover the edges of the sleeves with a satin band or just clean it with the zick-zack stitch or the sewing machine or even withe a slanting hand stitch. I used a pink Satin band to add a little embellishment

  1. Decide how high or low you want to place the sleeves. I put mine around the height of my waist but make sure to put them in the part of your torso you want to cinch in. I used my mirror to check it out.

  1. Sew the sleeve down on the torso. If you haven’t got a sewing machine you can also do this part easily by hand using needle and thread. Important make sure that you sew the right sides together, that you can’t see the edges if you tie the sleeves in the front.
